Announcing auditions: Still Kicking

Director Larry Sommers has announced audition information for Still Kicking, the first show in the 2013-2014 MainStage season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Laurie Russell, a Civic Theatre volunteer, wrote the script; this will be its world premiere production.

By turns funny and touching, Still Kicking tells the story of a troubled young girl forced to volunteer at a local retirement center. The people she meets teach her important lessons about life, love, and lifting with your legs, not your back.

Auditions will be Sunday, July 14 and Monday, July 15, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street, located at the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette.

Actors will be asked to read from the script, which can be checked out from Civic Theatre's office at 313 N. 5th Street in Lafayette.

Larry is looking for the following:

* Nine (9) women, ages 60-85
* One (1) man, age 60-85
* Two (2) women, ages mid-30s to mid-50s
* One (1) man, age mid-30s to mid-50s
* One (1) girl, age 13-17

Still Kicking will be performed Friday, August 30 through Saturday, September 14 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre in downtown Lafayette. Friday and Saturday shows will begin at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday shows will begin at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for youth age 18 and under. College students with valid ID can learn about Rush ticket availability before each show by following @LafayetteCivic on Twitter.

The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities.
